Amanda Jo Spoils needed some major alone time. She was tired of Pride life and the pampered, self-indulgent attitude of its male members. To think that she was expected to find a mate among the shallow pool of men, most of which had at least one possessive female already! She hadn’t spent four years in Special Forces and completed two tours in Iraq to come home and cater to the wants of any man. No, Amanda had some serious thinking to do about her future, and the wilds of Alaska seemed to be just what the doctor ordered.
But, boy, are the shifters restless in bear country! Not only has she fallen into the middle of a mystery surrounding an ancient artifact, but now she has not one, but two Alpha shifters determined to make her their mate. She can play them off against each other, but what happens when one wins? Amanda doesn't want a man, or a shifter, especially not a dominant one… But oh, how she secretly longs to be a submissive, the spoils of their Alpha war.
After spending the last ten years in the military, Amanda goes home to her Pride. Her father has given her an ultimatum, she chooses a mate or he will choose for her. Needing time to figure out her life and come to terms with her father’s demands, Amanda decides to take a two-week long vacation of solitude in Alaska. She never imagined that she would run into two hulking male bears.
It’s mating season for the bears and both Kam and Regan have caught Amanda’s scent. They both have made it their goal to claim this new feline as their own. They invoke an old law, “the Rite of the Victor”. Now Amanda must choose her mate from one of these two bears before nightfall or they will have a death match, winner gets Amanda. Adding to Amanda’s already chaotic life, she gets involved with a mystery concerning an ancient relic, that her mother helped uncover, and has Amanda shooting over to New York and getting her feet back into the work she was trained for.
I have to admit I have not read many shifter books, but I was totally pleased with this one, my little finger just would not stop hitting next page! The hero and heroine were perfectly matched wit for wit and their mating scenes were hot. Neither one wanted to give the other an inch; you were kept on your toes wondering what was going to happen between these two. You couldn’t ask for more in a book when you get shifters, mystery, hot scenes, and could it be love. Ms. Foxx did an excellent job of creating a story where the reader is pulled in and has no desire of getting out. You Gotta Read this one!!
